SYBLEND is a continuous loss in weight gravimetric blender designed to blend multiple components simultaneously for all processes where a homogeneous mix is critical to achieving an excellent final product. It meets all the need of a highly demanding process as per BCF, FDY and POY. Each hopper and material is weighed by two off-center load cells.
PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION
> Loss in weight measurement of each ingredient.
> All the ingredients are continuously and simultaneously metered directly in the integratedweigh collection hopper through a cascade mixer.
> The weight of the material metered in the collection hopper is constantly measured in order to detect the level variations due to changes in the extruder throughput or a discrepancy between the component feeder and the extruder throughput.
> The feeders are individually controlled in order to reach and maintain the preset metering ratios and to maintain a constant level in the collection hopper. As a result the metered throughput of the combined components is always equal with that of the extruder.
> EXCELLENT EXTRUSION THROUGHPUT CONTROL ACCURACY
> EXCELLENT DOSING ACCURACY
> HOMOGENOUS BLEND
> EACH COMPONENTS CAN RUN UP TO 100%
Easily cleaned and a fast production change over SYBLEND has all the side component gravimetric hoppers removable, so blender cleaning and production changeover has never been so fast and easy for an operator.
ACCURACY AND VIBRATION
SYBLEND has 2 loads cells for each component to negate vibration and to have better stability and improve the accuracy of dosing. Also all the loads cell are protected so the operator cannot damaged them.
Generally a dosing system doesn’t really mix due to the tiny collector where all the components are metered.
SYBLEND thanks to its innovative cascade mixer guarantees a good blend.
Every blender has its own 5.7” HMI touch screen from which the operator can easily set the parameters, calibrate the load cell and check the alarms. VNC is installed to allow easy remote monitoring via an internet / ethernet connection.
FESTO or SMC digital pneumatic components are connected directly via serial port to the PLC to make the installation the easiest possible and allow simple troubleshooting. Thanks to this modularity solution any future upgrade is guaranteed.
PLC AND I/O
All blenders have a B&R PLC installed along with B&R I/O. This solution makes each blender modular so that in future is possible to add components or to allow retrofitting on to an existing installation. In case of any component failures, it is easy for customer anywhere in the world to find locally sourced B&R parts so they can replace them directly without wasting time for transportation.
SYblend can be supply along with an integrated centralised conveying system controlled by the same PLC as the blender.
SYBLEND is prearranged to work up to 6 components.
Both mechanically and electrically SYBLEND can be upgraded easily in future up to 6 components as both the
blender itself and the PLC are pre-prepared.
VIBRO FEEDER & POWDER STATION
SYBLEND can also be supplied with a vibro feeder to one of the metering units to guarantee very small amounts can be dosed with a very high accuracy. A mini vibro dedicated feeder can be guarantee to run down to as low as 50 g/h and thanks to the special cascade design of the SYBLEND mixer, the blend will be kept perfectly homogenous.
SYBLEND can also be supplied with a twin screw feeder to one of the metering unit to guarantee very small amounts can be dosed with a very high accuracy. A twin screw dedicated feeder can be guarantee to eun down to as low as 50 g/h and thank to the special cascade design of the SYBLEND mixer, the blend will be kept perfectly homogenous.
